What was the most difficult question?

"Most diffcult questions were ethical dilemmas What do you do if you are in an elevator and a patient is there and 2 other physicians. The two physicians are badmouthing a patient. Not particularly the patient in the elevator but a patient in general. How do you react in such a situation? You are the 3rd year med student and a resident has diagnosed a patient with appendicitis butyou were just in there comforting the patient and didn't notice symptoms of such. You know the resident never actually checked on this patient. The attending has 2 min. to make a decision on the situation and asks you whether surgery is needed. The resident says yes but you know they didn't see the patient and think the answer is no. What do you do?" Report Response

What impressed you negatively?

"As with USF, it requires traveling for a lot of hospitals where you will have rotations and is not like the NE where you can do without a car. Still rather undeveloped in the surrounding areas.
